Phew! Is anyone else relieved to be back into a school routine? How was your summer? I’m not sure why, but this new season in parenting is particularly, unexpectedly challenging! What do I do when what used to ‘work,’ in parenting, is no longer working? How can couples stay grounded in marriage when facing a parenting crisis? What are some inexpensive activities for family time? My kids, tweens and teens are growing up too fast, what are the important conversations parents need to initiate?
What has worked for us over the last 23 years isn’t working any more. God used new challenges in parenting to purify areas in our marriage, there’s a gift there! –Tom
I have a need to be authentic and real, I hit the breaking point, “Lord, I don’t want your help, I’m done…” I was feeling humiliated.
Dr. Tom and Kari Curran recap the summer, launch the new school year and discuss the new struggles unfolding in their new stage of parenting. The Currans talk about the ‘gift of play’ and reveal the new conversations they are having with their kids.
